YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
I will start with
the positive: The small size of the campus and
student body was helpfull in a couple differant ways.
For one, you were able to see friends often and
didn't feel overwelmed by the amount of students. I
made good friends there and many of us still keep
in contact three years after graduation. Second, it was
easy to ask questions because class sizes were normally kept
to 20-25 students. The size of the campus also
made it easy to get around between classes and dorms.
On the other hand, there were areas that Eastern needs
to improve. For me, the academics were not
challenging. I found most of the classes to be
uninspiring and I sensed that most of the faculty AND
students just weren't interested. Even my advisor acted as
if I was a bother to him when I came
with questions. Furthermore, Eastern lacks a strong reputation and
network in the CT business community. As a business
student, I hadn't realized how important this was till my
junior year. This made it difficult when looking for
internships and jobs.
In summary I will say
If you are interested in education, playing college
baseball, or an easy degree, then Eastern may be a
good fit. For anyone else, I would look at
other options before you make your decision.
